Owner description: Geko Dive first opened in June 1997. It is the longest operating dive centre in Padang Bai. Geko Dive has been a PADI Resort since 1998, and is now a PADI 5 Star Resort and TecRec facility. We are fortunate to have one of Bali's best dive staff. Together, the Geko Dive Team can guide and teach in Balinese, English, French, German, Spanish, Indonesian and Japanese. All of our dive guides are excellent divers, with years of working experience on Bali's dive sites. At the same time, SCUBA remains a passion first and foremost. Diving with Geko Dive has always been fun and serene. To make sure that it stays this way, we are not planning to get any bigger than we already are. Dive factories and diving in large herds are not things that the Geko Dive Team enjoys. Diving should be a personal experience! We therefore keep dive groups small (4 max and often less), with similarly experienced divers together. We believe all our guests deserve the ultimate diving adventure with utmost enjoyment and safety.

We recently spent 4 nights in padangbai. My fiancé Stefan did his open water cert and I fun dived for two days.

I have spent 5 days with Geko, Amazing. Everything is done the right way: good equipment, awesome staff (even the French man!!!), clean and fast boats, good dive site knowledge and diving in small groups. Their location is cool as well, comfortable place to hang out, good music (well done music man) and great lunch after diving. Great value for... More

I would recommend Geko Dive to anyone. The instructors where most helpful. I have some physical issues and the guys at Geko worked with me to help me through the course. I can not thank them enough for all their assistance. If your at all apprehensive about learning to dive go to Geko they will help. Thanks for everything Geko

We felt in very good hands at Geko. The staff was always professional, the gear was in fabulous shape, and safety was clearly the priority without any of the fun jeopardized.

We found Geko Dive after seeing their boat while diving Tj Sari with another dive operator from Sanur. We decided that to dive the local Gilis (Biaha, Tepekong, and Mimpang) we should stick with locals that know the area as these sites can be tricky. We were not disappointed!! The folks that run this shop are great people and will... More
